"So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith." Ephesians 4:11-16

Rev Tom Speers.jpg

Our Pastor

The Rev. Tom Speers, III

Tom joined the Green Hill community in August 2016 when he began as Interim Pastor. A graduate of Connecticut College and Yale University, he has served as co-pastor of First Presbyterian Church, Hartford, CT, pastor of Overbrook Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia, PA, and Dickey Memorial Presbyterian Church in Baltimore, MD. He was probationer assistant minister in the Old Parish Church of East Kilbride, Scotland. 


Tom also served as Presbyter for Discerning the Way in the Presbytery of Southern New England and was co-chair of the Committee on Ministry. He currently serves on the Committee on Ministers and Congregtions of New Castle Presbytery and as a trustee of ChristianaCare Health System.


Tom is the brother, son and grandson of Presbyterian ministers—there are even some cousins and a great uncle who are or were ministers! He enjoys music and has been a member of the Westminster Presbyterian Church choir in Wilmington. Having lived for a time in Philadelphia, Tom knows the joy and occasional agony of rooting for Philadelphia sports teams.


Tom lives on the campus of the Tower Hill School where his wife, Bessie, is Head of School.
